  • Trump Head, Pence Tail

    If a metaphor could be used for this White House, it might be a two-sided coin with President Trump the head and Vice President Mike Pence the tail. The president tends toward the bombastic to get people's attention and make his points, while his vice president is calm and measured in his response to questions, sometimes resembling a contemplative monk. In many ways, they complement each other. During an interview Thursday, the vice president said tax reform is now the administration's top domestic priority and that "we have the best opportunity between now and the end of the year to...
  • Life of George Mifflin Dallas, Vice President of the United States

    Will Dallas join the 2017 Great Purge of American History? (Part 3 of 6) Throughout his political career, Dallas believed in popular sovereignty regarding states’ rights. To him that meant, until the Constitution was amended, each state had the right to decide the slavery issue for itself. The “Life of George Mifflin Dallas, Vice President of the United States” was originally prepared in September 1844, by the Democrat Committee of Publication, and then revised in November 1847. Quotes from Dallas within the publication document his understanding of popular sovereignty applied to the issue of slavery in new territories. A debate,...

    It’s over. The vice presidential debate has ended. But you wouldn’t know it because Sen. Tim Kaine is still talking over everyone. Yes, it’s the “junior prom,” but it does matter. One of these two men will be a heartbeat from the presidency come January, whether you like it or not. Given Hillary Clinton’s mysterious health issues, that's nothing to sniff at on the Democratic side. One of these men – Pence – will have the opportunity to advise a president on such important issues as the economy and national security. The other probably will be outside the room pressing...
  • 37 million viewers: Audience for VP debate was smallest

    A minor bummer for Pence given his strong performance, but the ratings downturn from 2012 was probably inevitable. This was the first veep debate since 2000 to feature two politicians with low public profiles. In 2004 Cheney was the sitting VP; four years ago Biden was. In between, in 2008, you had massive public curiosity about Sarah Palin, producing the biggest audience for a vice presidential debate in history at 70 million people. Last night’s contest between Kaine and Pence drew barely half that. That’s what happens when you have two little-known vanilla candidates competing with the galaxy of cable...

  • If the VP Debate Was an Ice-cream Social: Vanilla v Vanilla

    Washington Examiner ^ | 10/4/16 | Beverly Hallberg
    The most popular flavor of ice cream in America is vanilla. (Most surveys suggest it clocks in at 29 percent.) But I doubt many people choose to eat it plain. I know I'd rather eat the chocolate chip cookie dough — a pint of it, actually, while watching Netflix. Vanilla is our choice to serve as a complement, often mellowing a too-rich dessert. That's how I view the VP candidates this time around. A La Mode.

    Prior to announcing Gov. Mike Pence as his running mate, presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump had narrowed the VP field down to the Indiana governor, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, and Gov. Chris Christie. While Gingrich seems to have been a good sport about Trump’s ultimate decision to go with Pence, according to the Weekly Standard, Christie was “livid.” While minding my own business at the Starbucks inside the Westin hotel this morning, I saw a man engage Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort in conversation about the VP selection process. The man, whom I couldn't identify, suggested that Pence was...

    Bernie Sanders delegates believe that a number of high-profile names being mentioned as options for Hillary Clinton's running mate are unacceptable, and if she picks one of them, those delegates are be ready to protest the pick in Philadelphia at the Democratic National Convention in less than two weeks. According to a survey of Sanders delegates conducted by the Bernie Delegates Network, the numbers show "big concerns about Hillary Clinton's pending choice of a vice presidential candidate." [Snip] According to the online poll, a "vast majority" of surveyed delegates said that if Clinton picks someone they don't like, they would...

    The Weekly Standard ^ | 7/14/2016 | Jonathon Last
    The Drudge siren is blaring that Mike Pence is Trump's VP pick. I'm not sure I believe it, though, for a couple reasons. First, if you're a master showman looking to make as big a splash as possible, at least one head fake is required. In illusionist terms, the head fake is the turn, then bringing out the real VP is the prestige. Just picking a guy, leaking the word 24 hours early, and then rolling him out is the least-showy process imaginable. Second, Pence is probably the second-worst available pick on the board. Here's how the veep possibilities should...
  • Thoughts on Trump's Vice President (Whoever it May Be)

    07/13/2016 10:41:46 AM PDT · by SamAdams76 · 45 replies
    Within the next 48-72 hours, we should know who Donald Trump has chosen for a running mate. Some think it will be Friday and others think it will be over the weekend. But chances are, we will know by this time on Saturday (just three days from now) as typically candidates want to maximize the convention news cycle and announcing a few days prior will help accomplish that and build some excitement leading into the convention itself. I have no idea who Trump is going to pick but I do know this: Once the pick is made, there is...

    Donald Trump confirmed Tuesday that his top three choices for a running mate are New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal , the Republican presumptive nominee said he wants an “attack dog” on the ticket to help fend off what he sees as attacks from Democrats, the media and even fellow Republicans. He told the Journal he is looking to pick someone who is a “fighter skilled in hand-to-hand combat.” “I’m getting attacked from all sides,” he said. Many see Christie and Gingrich as...

    Donald Trump's top vice presidential vetting adviser -- Washington lawyer A.B. Culvahouse -- traveled to New Jersey Saturday to meet with Gov. Chris Christie, according to sources familiar with the plans. The meeting lasted approximately three hours and followed Christie's prior submission of the 100+ question vetting questionnaire, tax records and access to medical history. Sources tell NBC News, Culvahouse devoted a significant amount of time discussing the George Washington bridge lane closures, widely known as "Bridgegate." The Culvahouse interview for finalists is in addition to a personal, though less formal interview with Trump himself. Those two interactions cap the...

    Is it fair to call him the frontrunner? Yesterday’s splashy WaPo story about Flynn’s rise through the VP ranks didn’t use that word specifically, but it sure made it sound like he’s the guy Trump is looking at most closely right now. He’s a Democrat, pro-choice, and apparently a friendly acquaintance of Vladimir Putin. He’ll fit right in. After weeks of focusing on a group of current and former elected officials in his search for a running mate, Donald Trump is increasingly intrigued by the idea of tapping retired Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn to project strength and know-how on...

    Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich tells Breitbart News that he would consider being Republican candidate Donald Trump’s running mate in November’s general election. Asked if Trump has asked him to be running mate, Gingrich said, “No.” Asked if he would consider being running mate, Gingrich said, “Yes.” But, “I think he has to make that decision.” “It is the most extraordinary campaign of its time,” the former speaker added. “He’s come out of nowhere and defeated 16 other candidates.” “If he catches fire he could be much like Reagan in 1980,” Gingrich said, noting that Trump could match those record...

    A listener and a leader There is no doubt Donald Trump will decide on his running mate without trying to appease a particular political faction. There is also no doubt that he is considering several great alternatives as speculation continues to grow, and that he is listening to some of his most trusted advisors and others. Well, I’m a proud other and will offer my opinion, but I will support whomever Trump selects. Because! The main objectives in this 2016 presidential election are new, bold and creative leadership in the White House, and to defeat Hillary (untrustworthy) Clinton.

    INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Rumors continue to swirl around Indiana Governor Mike Pence. Speculation continues on whether Donald Trump will pick Pence as a running mate.

Pence only has ten days to make the decision to continue in the race for governor, or join Donald Trump as the vice presidential candidate. The governor spent the Fourth of July walking parades in Greene and Hamilton counties. This is after spending with weekend in New Jersey meeting with Trump. He said the two...
